Storyline

"Irish Eyes" explores the relationship between two Irish-American brothers in Boston born to immigrant parents and raised in a rough, working class Irish neighborhood. After watching their father being gunned down in front of their eyes as children, Thomas and Sean Phelan grow up building their lives on opposite ends of the law. Thomas, the studious and responsible brother, creates a better life for himself through education and hard, honest work. Eventually, he builds a successful career as a US Attorney. Sean, the more rebellious of the two, gets caught up in a life of crime and rises through the ranks to become the head of the Irish Mob. Spanning from post World War II during the late 1950's through the Irish Mob wars of the 1970's and culminating in their adulthood in the 1990's, the story is set to the backdrop of backroom politics and the realities of the Irish Mob and it's gang wars.

Powerful and Dramatic Movie of Mob and Revenge
24 October 2005 | by Claudio CarvalhoSee all my reviews

In Boston, the Irish father of two boys is executed by the Italian mafia in front of the children when he was leaving home going to work. Each brother follows a path in the law seeking for revenge: Sean Phelan (Daniel Baldwin) becomes a criminal and head of the Irish mob, and Thomas Phelan (John Novak) becomes a successful prosecutor. However, their relationship is almost impossible for both sides, leading to a tragic consequence.

I was really surprised with the IMDb User Rating of 2.9 for this movie. I saw an imported DVD without subtitles, and I missed some words because of the accent and way of speaking of John Novak, but I really found "Vendetta, No Conscience, No Merci" a powerful and dramatic movie of mob and revenge. The major problem is the miscast John Novak, who has no resemblance with Daniel Baldwin, becoming hard to believe that they are brothers. His way of speaking without moving the lips is also awful. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): Not available, but the imported DVD I saw is called "Vendetta, No Conscience, No Merci"
